Mamounia Lounge has long been tantalising Mayfair and Knightsbridge's upper crust with elegant North African cuisine, sophisticated shishas and lovely libations, and now with the relaunch of the flagship Curzon Street venue there is even more of a pull. The destination den boasts beautiful mosaic flooring, silver leaf ceilings, air perfumed with orange blossom and jasmine, and tables drenched in deep red Moroccan rose petals. It will be exceptionally seductive during the evenings, when the venue will be candle-lit, belly dancers will take to the floor in displays of whirling eroticism, and guest will be plied with potent cocktails, including the excellent 'Sheik Royal', an amalgamation of Moroccan orange infused vodka and elderflower, or Mamounia's signature 'Gold Digger'. There are plenty of delicious Moroccan sharing plates on the menu, including 'moutabel', a smoky aubergine dip blended with tahini, and 'meshoui', a slow roasted shoulder of marinated lamb served with dates, oranges and apricots. For those who enjoy indulging in the smoky delights on shisha, Mamounia offers a snug terrace with heated flooring and a canopy, where guests shishas are prepared fresh daily with molasses and ripe fruits like apples, pineapples and melons.
